Forever 21 is stocked with everything from synthetic handbags to faux fur jackets. And what about their shoes?! Forever 21 has one of the largest selections of vegan shoes I’ve ever seen. Love love love ’em!

Five runner-ups will also be chosen to receive a water bottle.

    I work with animals, and all the time animals come in that are sick or injured, so I take care of them. I spend extra time trying to keep the animals comfortable. I do everything I can to help make them better. I recently got a new pitbull, he was being abused/neglected at his old home. My parents didn’t want another dog, but I did everything in my power to convince them to allow us to have him, because he needed us. If we hadn’t saved him he probably wouldn’t be around anymore. I use all my extra money to buy cat food for the stray cats. I’m a vegitarian. I take every chance I get to help animals.

    I have been vegan pretty much my entire life.
    I grew up in a very.. meat-less household. I am now 14.. going on 15… and I love my life.. I always feel so much more healthier than most teenagers.. I volunteer at the SPCA 3-4 times a week, and recently bought a puppy named Bella. Plus, I’m not sure if it was just luck or what.. but when i bought her they had said that she doesnt like meat! So when i heard that I was like wow, this is like my little baby :) lol. But in the end life is amazing and animal cruelty NEEEDS to come to an end . peace&love,

    this year i went vegan, i ordered 3 different petitions (mcdonalds, KFC, and Candian seal slaughter. And every public restroom i go to, i post PETA stickers and pamplets on the walls or in the stalls and mirrors. i have gotten 5 people to become vegan with me and i bought a pig from the agriculture class, who were going to show the pig in a show and if he won he would be slaughtered, and i kept him as a pet until i gave him to my grandpa who raises pigs but doesnt kill them.

    This year and the years before i have adopted many animals. i rescued a white bunny and found a loving family who were willing to love it. Then i rescued another dog this year. He was just a puppy, it was starved, cold and frightened. i took care of it and named it toby. now he lives happily with my two other dogs Rocky and Derby and My cat Jumper.

    This year i went vegan. What inspired me to turn life saving, was a video from peta.com. While serving the web i came acrost ‘Meet Your Meat’. Watching this heartbraking video, my life changed. Now since Around sptember, Ive been helping my frends at school realize what the worlds dirty lie was.at the momment 3 of my friends are now vegan too, although others are struggling to grasp the idea of it, Im know that they’ll realize that eating meat is murder. And they can help save many helpless lives by turning vegan.

    this year some bad people broke into the locol kill-free animal shelter! they stole almost all the food and a lot of blankets and even some of their money! so me and nine of my other friend went around and put up the posters we made to inform people what happend and that we would collect anything from towles to blanket to food and money. we raised more then 1600 dollers and a ton of blanket and animal food. we gave it all to the animal shelter and my parents were so proud that they even let me adopt a new cat Her name is coco. She is my new best animal friend! this is for you coco.

    This year, I emailed the superintendent at my school with my concerns for more vegetarian/vegan food at my cafeteria. It took awhile, but soon they had vegetarian breakfast burritos, cheese pizza, and even soy milk! Alot of my friends are vegetarian/vegan, and I plan on making the step to go vegan very soon; because I spoke up and took a stand to my cafeteria, we’ll all have an easier time eating at school (:

    My neighbors have a dog, two cats and plenty of fish. They go away often, and need their pets to be watched over. When they ask, I have absolutely no problem helping out the animals. When they offer a reward, I always let them know that it’s not necessary. If it means helping aninmals, I’ll do it free of charge. :]

    I raised tons of awareness about various causes, and even got 2 letters from Eric Cantor because of it. I went vegetarian (on and off tho, unfortunatly), attempted to mke my family go veg (they teased me T_T instead). I donated money to my local animal shelter, and retured a lost dog to his owner. :)

    This year I decided to become a vegetarian, and I also convinced my roommate to do it with me. Ever since we’ve turned for the better we have been opening peoples minds up to what’s really going on in the world and how they can help. Most of our friend are considering becoming vegetarian as well.

    to whoever reads this, my names danielle, and i’m a vegetarian(:. i made this transition a few months ago because i just couldn’t stand the thought of me ‘murdering’ animals. now i feel like im saving thousands of animals lives. in the past year, i’ve gotten about 15 of my friends to stop eating meat. i absolutely LOVE animals to whoever reads this, my names danielle, and i’m a vegetarian(:. i made this transition a few months ago because i just couldn’t stand the thought of me ‘murdering’ animals. now i feel like im saving thousands of animals lives. in the past year, i’ve gotten about 15 of my friends to stop eating meat. i absolutely LOVE animals <3, and i hate the fact that theyre killed for other people to survive. i mean, how would a person feel if an animal killed then for food? that’s how i view things :]. but anyways, besides getting some friends to become vegetarian, i’ve also made up a plan to get people to go green :D. not by just becoming vegetarian, but by saving energy, not littering, and other things along those lines :). i just want to try to stop global warming somehow. one other thing i did was inform my whole family about these animal shelters that were holding christmas adoptions for pets. my cousins cat just died this year, so when i told her about this she was happy to go check out the shelters doing the adoptions. she ended up adopting 3 cats! one cat was about to be put to sleep, but everything i had told my cousin aobut ‘saving animals’ made her take the cat just in time! i felt like i somehow saved the life of an animal and that made me feel really good.

    During the summer of 2009, I volunteered at my local animal shelter. I learned a lot about the animals there, and each animal had filled my heart with teir own unique personalities. It was deffinately not all fun and games though. Feeding them, giving the dogs baths, and cleaning up the cats cages every morning was dirty work. But it was needed to be done. There was never adull moment at the animal shelter, for people were constantly wanting to take a look at a cat or dog. One of the most interesting thing to do at the shelter was to watch the doctor spay and neuter dogs and cats. Many people didn’t have the stomach to watch, but I certainly did, and I learned a lot. Of course though, every animal has it’s time. It was too heartbreaking for me when one of my favorite dog, Mona, got put to sleep. When one of the other volunteers told me the terrible news, I just sat and cried. I don’t think I’ll ever forget her. Despite losing one of my friends, I gained more as new dogs came in. Care and love is something all creatures need, and it was my pleasure giving it to them.

    This year, in 2009 I’ve done many things to help animals. One of the things i’ve done is become a vegetarian. I also persuaded my boyfriend to becoming one, too. (trust me, it’s an amazing feat.) Also, this year, I started an Animal Rights Club at my school. The principal congratulated me on being the first Freshman to ever start and become president of a successful club. In this club we’ve done many things such as protest at KFC, leaflet around the school, and hold a vegan bakesale. I also currently adopted a baby black kitten who was found around Halloween. My family and I were afraid that the kitten would be beaten or sacrificed on Halloween Day. I’ve also introduced my family to new vegetarian recipes. My little sister even decided to become a vegetarian. In conclusion, I believe I’ve done many things to help animals this year.

    To help animals out this year I did not dissect a frog in biology. My friend had a puppy that she couldn’t keep any longer and was going to have to take it to the pound, so my mom and I kept the puppy at our house until we found a good couple to adopt it. (it was a chihuahua!) :) and I yell at my brother to avoid running over squirrles as they try to make it safely across the street. :)

    SAVE THE ANIMALS DAY!
    i served 100% vegan foods during lunch, had petitions signed, raised money for the animal shelter, and had a dog food drive.
    i also had dogs from the animal shelter at school during that day.
    i adopted one, and three more were adopted by the end of the day.
    it was a great experience and i everyone learned a lot about animal rights, animal cruelty, and going vegan!

    I have been a complete vegan all these years of my life and believe me I feel great that in a way I am helping stop cruelty done to animals who cannot even speak (unlike humans) of the pain when people cut/chop them and have them for their meal.I always try to encourage people around me to turn vegans and some of them have actually changed.Being vegetarian not only helps you from doing cruelty to animals but is also good for your health in many ways.

    Just a couple of weeks ago my aunt’s 13 year old cat passed away after having a stroke and not responding to veterinary aid..So, the other day I took her to local shelters to try to help another cat in need of a loving home..Even though she said her cat would never be replaced, she agreed that helping another animal would fill that void she’d been feeling since the death of her beloved feline companion. With our luck, we found a shelter that had 2 kittens left. One of which had gotten her tail caught up in something that managed to destroy the end of it, leaving half a tail with a little tip that still needed to be surgically removed..My aunt held the sweet black kitten in her arms and that was it, LOVE! The kitten looked up, sniffed her nose and began purring..That was when we knew we just had to help her, and my aunt took her home that day! She has now been spayed and her tail is healing after a small operation, no more shelters for her, just a warm caring home and a stocking by the fireplace..Happy Holidays!!

    This past May, I went vegetarian. It was one of the best decisions of my life! After realizing all the cruelty that animals have to endure just so we humans can enjoy a hamburger or a taco, I had no other choice. I feel so much healthier and more energetic. I have also convinced a number of my friends to think about what goes on their plates, not by scolding them, but just by setting an example. Several of them have turned veggie too! :)

    Cruelty, NoThankszz.
    Okay, so im young but im very much interested in animals, their saftey and the environment that they live in. ive recently become a vegetarian, even though ive been trying for years. Ive been a vegetarian for about a year now but im new to this.
    Ive spoken to many random people at my school about what animals go through just so that they can eat a single piece of meat, it isnt fair. Ive convinced many people to TRY going vegan, or vegetarian and SOME of them have. i was insipred to go vegetarian by one of my closest friends and ever since ive done the same, inspired people && Even my TEACHERS have gone veg. because they understood my POV and they agreed that animals shouldnt bee eaten.
    i stand outside the malls and just talk to people about animals, and the cruelty towards them and youd be suprised how many people actually stay and listen,(:

    I went vegetarian this year. I saw the Meet your Meat video and it changed my life. Ive gotten at least 20 people to see it via email or just telling them and showing them. Then i also heard about the McCruelty campaign and decided to check that out. I ordered the fliers and have already gotten the entire petition slip filled out by handing them out and having people sign at school. Im 14 so i still live with my parents and siblings even though they think im crazy for doing these things. Ive gone to moths without eating any meat and ive decided to do this until i move out, then im becoming vegan.

    my husband and I decided to cut out the meats in our food. I quit all at once, but it was a bit harder for him. He is down to eating meat once every couple of weeks. We did our research and made the decision together. It was both for our health and well being as well as that of all the animals. While talking to some friends about our choice, we learned about some people that lived a few blocks away that were raising pit bull dogs, not to love, but to fight. We took it to the courts, but fought for the dogs to be put in our custody instead in doggy jail. Some of the dogs were brought to my home, while others were not so lucky. There were dogs so horribly disfigured nad wounded there was nothing that could be done. But for the dogs that we received.. all have been well taken care of. We found loving homes for all but one of the dogs, and she will have a litter anytime. We love each and every dog and thank all the people who stepped up and spoke up not only for these precious animals, but for every animal that has yet to receive their own voice!!

    This year I’ve done many things for animals. I’ve passed out leaflets and stickers in the downtown Chicago area. I’ve gone to protests. I’ve completely decked my locker in Peta attire. I’m also in the process of slowly turning my whole family vegetarian, one meal at a time. I post videos in bulletins and other people’s blogs at least once every month. I’ve even talked with a few teachers at my school about setting up a showing of ‘Meet your Meat’ (this may happen within the next school year). And I am currently in the process of filling out applications to work at pet shelters to submit when I finally turn 16 in February.
    I think the biggest thing I’ve done for animals in 2009 was take in and find homes for 4 kittens that my friend found outside her house in early August. I set out water and food everyday and after waiting a week, we realized their mother wasn’t coming back. So I took the 4 kittens to my house, and from there contacted a bunch of friends about the 4 kittens. I was able to give 2 away to a family down the street. As for the other two (after keeping them for a month, and not finding them a home) we had given them to the Humane Society, 3 days later I called the society to find out both the kittens had been adopted within a day and a half of dropping them off. I think this was probably my biggest impact on animals this year, because I actually got to save lives. I’m hoping opportunity such as this presents itself again and I have another chance to save lives.

    I am going on year two of being a vegetarian. I believe if more people knew about the suffering of animals, more people would choose vegetarian/vegan lifestyle.
    At my high school, we used to have almost no cruelty free options. However being a member of our student leadership council, I decided to change that. I petitioned for more vegetarian lunch options and now we a line dedicated to serving vegetarian food.

    Well, this isn’t going to be as long as others are..
    But over the year, I’ve rescued animals and brought them into my home to have as my own. And I absolutely love them with all my heart (2 cats, 1 dog)
    I rescued two stray kitties and brought them to a near by shelter. And they’ve both been adopted out to loving families!! Thankfully :)
    And I also became vegan! It wasn’t that hard to do, I have been a vegetarian for 3 years now, so it wasn’t hard at all, and with all the alternatives.. there is no need to ever go back to eating dairy products. Or using any other products that involve cruel acts with animals.. never again – I promised myself. :)
    And I also convinced my mother to become a vegetarian. She’s been one for a year now and we couldn’t be any happier or healthier! Now she’s buying a crap load of Peta merch all the time – hahaha. It’s actually quite funny.
    I really hope to win :) If I don’t, congrats to the actual winner!

    This year, I volunteered at my local animal shelter, donated so many bags of dog food and cat food that half the time i didnt even think i could fit through the door with them! It was an amazing experiance, as I helped out the animals with my own two hands and fed them, cleaned them, made them feel safe. I believe the best thing to do for animals is be thier voice and make them be heard. ‘Be the change you wish to see.’

    This year has been a pivotal year for me, in which I told anyone who would want to listen the cruelty animals go through. I became sort of an advocate and when I had the chance to, I would remind them the pain the animal went through before it was killed for food. I received PETA stickers and those adorable comic books, and I just distributed to my friends, and they were like “Wow, I didn’t know that Chickens could be so SMART.” and so on. Also I convinced two of my friends to stop eating meat for a month, and they did and now they want to know about PETA, the causes etc.
    Even though I’m barely 17, I think I’ve made a difference. Now my friends opt out of eating at McDonalds, instead they just eat some fruits and veggies and healthy stuff that doesn’t contain any animals products and isn’t that expensive.
    I also took care of some new born stray kitties early this year, and now they’re fully healthy and all grown up. The nice neighbors decided to keep the cat, because well my family isn’t that keen on having animals in the house.
    & I’ll continue to do EVEN more the coming year!

    Even though I’m not a vegetarian, I have cut down on certain meats to eat (i only eat beef, chicken, and certain types of fish), saying that im not old enough to exactly be eating just veggies…. plus i use to eat all kinds of meat such as shrimp, squid, duck, stuff like that and I just quit this year. I have been eating certain types of meat for 6 months and im perfectly fit and fine *also I don’t eat much meat as I use to*
    I have a friend who is a vegetarian and I’m trying to make a cookbook for her, both healthy for her body and delicious, which can be hard sometimes.
    I have a dog who I love so much, I can’t just let her go of my site and will play with her right away.
    I use to babysit my neighbors cats until she moved away. I also helped my neighbor giving her sick cat medication that the vet told her to give, which scared me…. unfortunatly she died around the same time my neighbor’s husband died.
    I have tried to spread the word about animal cruelty and explained how animals were like us.
    I have also boycotted McDonalds, which was hard for my dad to handle since he goes there so much, and I explained why I was boycotting and he now rarely goes there.

    Hey, My name is Nick
    This year has had many turning points for me helping animals. I went vegan. I filled out 4 petitions aganst Canada’s seal slaughter. I made my teachers and friends vegan and some vegetarian. And I even donated and volunteered at my local Humane Society which just moved to a fantastic new extra large building because their old one was small, filthy and only had about 2 cages left for cats. I have also made my friends and family join peta just by collecting the smallest amount of info.

    I became vegan last year. But until August 2009, I had not been a kind person. I would do the most awful things to people and be completely unfeeling and not even realize how I hurt them. I had attempted suicide two years before, but I failed and simply bled out and passed out a few hours (do you know how painful it is to wake up nearly dead, naked in the shower, and then to put your clothes on and your family doesn’t even notice the blood under your nails and the half-foot slashes on your legs?) I told myself everyday that I should be dead, and although I never tried dying again, I never forgave myself for not being dead. I was not anorexic, but I obsessed over my weight. I guess no one noticed me never eating because I never got very thin, I dropped maybe 20lbs. And I was heartless to other people.
    August of 2009 I had an epiphany. I forgave myself for not dying, and decided not to preoccupy myself with my weight because there were so many much better causes that I could help. And I could make a difference. I became closer to God. If it weren’t for God, I would be dead right now. And that is what I have done this year for animal rights, I have not only been more involved with activism, but I have purified myself so I can truly say that I am cruelty-free, for the animals, for the people, and for myself.

    After 5 years of living by a vegetarian lifestyle, my mom and I have become vegans to better the environment and protect animals. My mom was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease, and she discovered that the unhealthy fats in her diet could actually be aiding the progression of her disease. This was after years of me trying to convince her to change her eating habits. Because of her diet choices, she’s not only saved animal life, but her own life.

    HI! My name is Nastassia Guzman, and when i found out about Peta2 a month ago i immediately joined. My friend had gotten me to go on the website by becoming a vegetarian. I was really taken off gaurd by her choice but never questioned it. But about a week or two after joining the street team i started to read into what the site was about a little more, and quickly made the switch to cruelty free products. as a major hair product user this was somewhat drastic for me, but I’m so much happier now knowing that i don’t use products that were tested on animals. If someone ever tried testing on one of my pets i know how i would feel and i don’t want other animals to suffer just like mine would. So i signed the animal testing breaks hearts petition, and signed up for activist materials to get started.
    Besides that, i recently signed the pledge to go veg. Coming from a family that eats meat almost every night, this is important. I’ve made the choice to go Veg because i watched the “chew on this” video and it changed my life completely. Now when i think about meat and how it tastes i nearly barf! i’m feeling sick just writing this, but now i completely understand why my friend made the change in the first place. Now not only do i support her 100%, but i myself am making the change. I don’t think it will be easy at first, but I’m in it for life. I’m proud to say that i am now a Veg head!

    This year has been the greatest for my high school. I made a comment on how ALL of our choices of food to eat, all had meat in them. Im a vegetarian and was forced to bring my own lunch because of the food in the cafeteria. I spoke to all of my friends about having more of a non-meat lunch choice. I spoke up to our principal and he loved the idea. Our lunch choices now dont even have one little bit of meat in them. We have over 600 kids in my school, and so thats saving a lot of animals from being eaten. Thats how i saved our school from eating animals.

    I have been vegetarian for almost a year, on and off. In September, I started being vegetarian again. And about two weeks ago, I started being a vegan. I know it’s gonna be hard, with the economy and all because being vegan is EXPENSIVE. But I am willing to do it because, I LOVE ANIMALS. Many people have told me that it is a serious health risk, and my friends have told me that peole they know have gone to the hospital because they were vegan and malnourished, but I don’t care, I am doing this, not to be cool, or because it’s a “fad”, I’m doing this because animal cruelty IS wrong and animals DO have feelings. I’m doing this because I have morals. I have made shirts with the printable stencils like “I’m not a nugget” and “Meat=Murder” and I wear them to school proudly, no matter how much ridicule I get for it. I LOVE HOW BEING VEGAN MAKES ME FEEL. I don’t feel like a murderer anymore. I talk about it every day to my friends and people that I meet, I post videos on myspace to get the real picture into people’s heads, and I have convinced about 10 people not to eat at KFC anymore. It’s amazing what words can do.

    I have discovered peta which changed my life. I’ve decided to boycott McDonalds and KFC and I have been more aware of how much meat I eat. (Since My dad has said that right now it’s unhealthy to go vegan no matter how badly I would want to since I am only 13) I have gotten a new dog her name is Fluffy and she is a year old. I love her with all my heart and I went to a shelter and made a dog happy. Apparently that dog’s brother got adopted and so that dog lost that brother THAT day and so I played with him and he became a happy puppy. Later, he was adopted too. So I made a dog happy, discovered peta, decided to boycott McDonalds and KFC, have a dog and decided to eat less meat. I feel better about myself.

    I’ve also gotten my best friend to try vegetarianism for a week then going vegan for a week to see the benefit and the motivation needed to say no when someone offers you a slice of yummy pizza (Lol and i order pizza all the time, just without cheese and lots of veggies). I hosted a vegan/vegetarian birthday party for some of my friends and they loved it. Hmmm… I’ve also donated my sheepskin boots that i got for an early Christmas present to charity because I’m not going to wear them. Ive also handed out copies of chew on this to kids at my school. I’ve also stopped using some makeup that i found out was tested on animals. Hahaha Ive also gone into KFC and flipped off a coronal sanders sign i saw.
    PHEW! thats probably not all of it though X]

    I worked in Yosemite over the summer and I worked very hard to keep the visitors from mistreating the wildlife. I stopped guests from: feeding the animals people food (deer should not eat nachos), trying to pet the animals (squirrels, deer, and even believe it or not bears), and just harassing the animals overall. Those things are not good for the critters and they are harmful to humans too (bear attacks, deer stampedes, fat squirrels attracting cougars and bobcats).

    I’ve had countless conversations (usually with strangers) about vegetarianism and I changed a lot of minds. I also talked my friends out of going to McDonald’s or KFC whenever we go out to lunch. I spread those awesome animal rights stickers like a disease and so many people at my school have them all over their binders and phones and stuff.

    I’ve been vegan since the beginning of september, I started a blog about my veganism. I was a veggie since I was eight, but finally took the big step to being vegan. I saved a homeless kitten from the streets. I have argued the great points about going vegan. I even wrote a declaration of independence from cruelty to animals and eating meat and presented it to my History class! 😀 Hope I get that bag!

    This year, I volunteered at an animal shelter. I also swore of all leather, suede, etc. (I am a vegetarian).
    Also, I saved a sparrow. One day I was walking with my sister and we saw the sparrow laying in the middle of the street. We saw that it was still alive and seemed to have a broken wing. My sister and I made sure that an oncoming car went around the sparrow and picked it up on a flattened orange juice carton that we found. We then brought it home and kept it until it was healed. Then we set the sparrow free.(And we named it Miracle.)

    Well this might not count cause it was last year.. but I found a mouse that was sick and he wouldn’t move too far so me being me, I kept trying to give him food and I sat around him for a while. He got kinda excited when i put the small piece of cheese in front of him, but he couldn’t move too well. So I got him into a box thing and kept him in there for safety from my cats til morning and I didn’t want to put him outside just yet. He was still okay in the morning so before I left for school I let him go by vines next to my house! I hope he made it! He was so small and cute!

    I went from pescatarian to vegetarian in March, and went vegan in October. Also, I’ve gone leafletting around the city. To raise awareness of animal cruelty, I wrote essays about it in English and Government class, and did art projects that focused on Animal Liberation, Animal Testing, and peta2. In addition, I proved how it IS possible to make vegan pastries and milk/eggs are NOT essential.
    Also, I’ve converted 3 people to go vegetarian and recruted 3 people to the peta2 streetteam.

I also adopted a dog at a shelter. He’s a boston terrier corgie mix and is sooo lovable. Along with him I adopted a cat too. I have gotten 7 of my friends to convert to veginatarism. And they too are very happy! ALL of my beauty supplies are animal cruelty free! Since september I have turned my life completely around and things are going better. Im even working on my school switching to animal cruelty free cleaning products. I really hope I win! I will walk and pass out pamplets with my new tote bag while I sip a drink out of my bottle!

    Since Cleveland Warped Tour in July when I received my Peta2 DVD, and hearing some of my favourite bands, and people I look up to talk about animal rights and vegetarianism, I have been seriosly considering becoming a vegetarian. I talked to my doctor about it and ya know, since I’m only 14, it isn’t the most healthy thing to do. Since well, I’m not done growing. I’ve cut all red meat out of my diet, and fish. I have made my family only buy products that have not been tested on animals and even bought a eco-friendy hair-straightener. At least 2 or 3 times a week, we have vegetarian dinners. It’s healthier for my parents, too.
    OY! and in my Web Design class, my best friend and I are making a ‘animal-cruelty/animal rights/why you should become a vegetarian web-site. Pretty cool, If I do say so. :)

    this year i have gone vegan, as well as my 2 children 3 and 1 yrs old. and also incouraged my sister to be vegan as well, the 2 of us have convinced our local stores to carry more vegan and vegitarian options. which was difficult, we live in montana in a farming town. so its extreamly difficult to gain any support at all. also achieved in getting my daughter’s and my sisters schools to offer vegitarian and vegan options on thier menus for lunches. in adition i take my girls to the ani,al shelter every weekend to visit love and play with the unadopted animals, and clean cages as well. and this thanksgiving i made an intierly vegitarian meal (tofurky log 😉 )and my meat craving brothers father and mother al l ate it as well!! And i am part of the street team, and convinced my sister and a couple other friends to join as well. and me and my sister have rescued 3 dogs from our local shelter and givin them a wonderful home with us, as well a pretty kitty named tibs 😀

    My family is obsessed with meat. We live in a community where you are very judged based on your lifestyle. when i went vegetarian, people asked me why? they would put meat in all my food on purpose. they would buy beef jerkey and put it in my backpack or locker. i convinced myself they were doing this just because they couldn’t be as persistent or loyal to animals as me. When i moved to a small town where everyone makes a living raising and slaughtering animals, i was the ONLY vegetarian. i have convinced 3 of my friends to become vegetarian, i adopted a dog, I babysit my neighbors dogs, and cooked a completely vegetarian meal for my family on thanksgiving, and they ate it:) oh i also joined the peta2 street team, and gave my teacher a persuasive essay on the effects of animal cruelty and dissection, and she took me up on the offer of dissection alternatives:)

    I tried going vege twice.and i think bc i just wasnt fully commited OR educated on the topic.I quit.The this summer (August 6th to be exact!=] )
    i was bored and had nothing to do,so i went on peta2.and saw ‘Meat your Meat’…since that day i have never had a piece of meat or a single drop of milk.And milk used to be my all time favorite drink next to water,and its been kinda hard,but im totally fine with not consuming that pus filled s#*t
    =]
    So latley i’ve been extremly passionate about going vege/vegan which my family HATES bc they are all from another country…where meat is a staple for just about everything they eat.Since i’ve become so passsionate,i got a buncha free stickers and stuf (thanksss!) ,passed them around my school,and turned 3 kids vegetarian by just handing out the McCruelty fliers/stickers!!And one of m teachers is contemplating vegetarianism.It feels great that i have stopped at least One family from contributing to animal murders

    I have been vegetarian and I have now went vegan. I have done a few protest including ones against McDonalds and Ringling bros.
    Then at my school we had a day to bring in food and i brought in veggie chicken and tofu stir-fry for everyone to try along with some PETA leaflets, it turned out really well and i got lots of signatures on the protest “MCCRUELTY”
    I hope to do more next year, but hey that’s a start.

    Me and my family went to a restaurant that served nothing but meats. And I chose not to eat anything, and my parents got mad but I don’t care I was proud to not eat anything because at least I know if that’s what everyone did we would be doing a good deed to animals.

    This year, I have become vegan and feel more sure about my choice each time i see someone eating meat,fish, or eggs.
    Everything of it is becoming more and more disgusting.
    Due to my choice, my family tends to cook more meals that don’t contain the above mentioned. This means that i have reduced animal product use in my fam.

    This is my first year with PETA and I haw learned a whole lot! The changes I’ve made include only buying products, avoiding cruel stores listed on peta’s website, and volunteering at the animal shelter. I’ve also been focusing on spreading the word about McCruelty. I have been passig out fliers, getting the petition signed, and putting the stickers on every piece of mail that goes out. On top of that, I talk to Ronald McDonald at special events about McCruelty. My efforts won’t stop there though!

    a few years ago me and my mom was walking my dog and we found a kitten. even though my dog growled and barked like crazy she kept walking to us like she wasnt even afraid. so being the animal lover that i am, i went over and picked her up. she was skin and bones and literally smelt like death. i told my mom that we should take her in. we felt so sorry for the kitten and knew she wouldnt last long on the streets that we took her in. a few years later, we still have her and she is heathy and clean and loves us very much.

    I adopted a chinchilla from a girl who couldn’t look after it well enough. When I got her, she didn’t have any water or food, and had never had a mandatory chinchilla dust bath. This is something good I’ve done for one animal, at least. Also, I take great care of my pet cat.

    3 or 4 years ago me and my family took this dog in that was dropped off at our house. she was skin and bones so we called her ribsy. we had her for about 4 years but unfortunetly she passed away this year. she had problems and we think she died of a heart attack or something. i’m just so glad that the last 3 years of her life she spent with people that loved her and not out on the streets. i love and miss her dearly. R.I.P ribsy.

    This year i have made the switch to going vegitarian. It’s been a good choice in my life. I haven’t eating meat in one month and a week today. I know that doesn’t sound like a long time but it is ; considering how many animals are being saved. Also, I have been trying to convince other people at my school and telling them all the things that slaughter houses do to the animals.

    ok so this year i helped out a bird. there is this little budggie who likes our bird bath in our back yard along with the bird feeder. i guess someone let it go, or it escaped i don’t really no. and since it is winter now we got the bird into a bird cage and brought him inside so he doesn’t freeze. ^.^
    and a couple years ago my friend and i rescued a baby bird from a dog and nursed it back to health. it was a little robbin. and once she was able to fly again we let her go. poor little baby feel out of her nest and was about to get eaten by a dog. i guess it was a good thing we came along.

    i’ve rescued about 20 lab mice from my University, they were to be used for nonsense medical experiments,I convinced a guy to give me the key to the animal facility. Remove only 20 because I had no where to put them, now I have 12 at home and the rest were adopted.
    they’re such tender creatures and helpless in this country where human hardly enforced their rights. Its hard to be a animal in Paraguay =(

    I have raised money and raised awareness on the plight of the orangutan, to help prevent the species from extinction. I have launched my own website which allows people from all over the world to be involved in compeitions, plights, campaigns and just get some information. http://driventodestruction.webs.com I have recently held a raffle at my school and raised £21 in a week which had the prize of a meal for two at ‘Pret A Mange’ restaraunt/cafe. I also held a stall at the christmas fair, raffle-ing ape and monkey teddies and christmas cards. Which raised over £100. I also put up hand made posters and images of many ways in which people can help orangutans by not using palm oil and destroying the rainforest. I was incredibly proup of that as i had people telling me that they have been persuaded to change their ways for good! I als oare going to study Primatology and Biological Anthropology at University, to try and get the chance to work with these magnificant primates. And also save these baby orphans from the constant battle of deforestation and poaching, and most of all EXTINCTION.!

Honestly, I won against my debator, who was against animals rights.

    i Have recently became vegatarian. and im definitely all into anything about saving and helping animals, for every cause.some of my non-vegetarian guy-friends ( for some reason a lot of men act really passionate about being meat-eaters. and act like it’s wrong to not eat animals) really get me angry and i would argue to the death. and he told me that he doesnt really care about people disecting animals, and that animals are too overpopulated, so i said “so are humans , do you want me to disect you?” and he said well thats different and i said ” not its not.humans, are evil anyway… fine if we cant disect you , then disect me. id rather someone kill me and cut me open then an innocent animal.” i have always felt really strongly about animals, ever since i was a little girl. i actually did, and still do care more about my pets than my family. i care more about all animals than humans. humans, are evil, and cruel, and i care so much more about animals, and luckily im a human so i have more power to stand-up and make a change for the animals. so i believe that is a part of the reason why i am on this earth. :)

Back in June I decided that I WANTED to be a vegetarian and that no one would stop me.Yes, living in Alabama makes it a hard choice from time to time but what those animals go through is even harder.That’s why I’m proud to say that I have been meat free again for 6 months and have no desire to stop ever again.

    This year, I celebrated my 1 year “Vegeversary”……showed my vegetarian pride on Hug A Vegetarian Day (I think I am the only one at my school, but working on persuading more people to go vegetarian or vegan), ordered a bunch of Peta’s Street Team starter kits and plastered the stickers over my school supplies and phone…encouraged my family to try some of my Tofurky on Thanksgiving (failed attempt, but still!)…convinced my 10-year-old sister that she should go vegetarian (she loves it!…threw out all my Covergirl makeup and Herbal Essences shampoo for testing on animals, stopped buying leather belts and bags, and finally, I sent a volunteer application for Dreampower Animal Rescue here in Colorado to be a host parent for animals and to table at PetSmart. :)
    It’s been a good year!

    I did lots this year; leafleting outside KFC, volunteers for 3 PETA demonstrations, tabled once for peta2, found homes for a couple of animals, raised funds via SocialVibe, responded to tons of PETA Action Alerts & lots of online activism.

    Well of course there’s always more that I could do for animals! I’m helping make a small difference by being a vegetarian (I’ve been one for several years), I keep all land & sea animals off my plate and let them live…in return I receive some good karma and meat-free meals that taste way better than I ever remember meat tasting! Spread the peace!

    I’m vegan, and I’ve taken the time this year to patiently explain to all those I know why I’ve chosen this lifestyle and answer any questions that they’ve had. I’ve also spent bunches of times with my companion animals. :)

    Since my family and I have moved to Florida there has been this family that always allows their pets to wonder around freely. One day i went to take out the trash and this Jack Russel was hiding underneath my mom’s car. After I was finally able to get the dog to come out by bribind her with cheese, I noticed that she was covered in filth and gunk. I snuck her inside and gave her a bath. She kept whinnig thourgh out it I thought I was causing more harm than help. Soon I discovered the cause of her discomfort, it was these giant bumps on her front legs. My mom saw the dog and agreed that if the owners allow it we can keep her. We named her Jewels and is in perfect help today. She still runs around the nieghborhood but always comes back.

    And I almost forgot! I wrote a letter to my congressman about pet saftey and wild animal saftey in Virginia. He wrote me back saying he was putting the Pet Saftey and Protection Act of 2009 into effect. That will prevent class b dealers from selling animals because their living conditions can kill them, and have allready done so!
    2009 was a great year!

    This year I have done so much for animals! I volunteered at my local animal shelter to play with the dogs who might have not been played with before. I am working toward vegan options at my school at the moment, I allready got through the principal, but he said I need to go higher! I’m on my way! I went vegan and even convinced my friends to go vegetarian for both their health and the animals.

    well. at the beginning of the year, i didn’t think i could ever live even a vegetarian lifestyle. but, by may, i watched videos online, and things just kind of, clicked in my head. i became a vegetarian for a week, and after that decided veganism was the best option. i’ve been living vegan for almost seven months now, and i’m loving every minute of it. i’ve even convince quite a few of my friends to become vegetarian. :]

    This year, I have decided to go Vegan, against the debates of my friends and family. I live in a rural farming community, so many people here feel as though vegetarianism, veganism, and even animal activism is rediculous. This absolutely breaks my heart! This is the third time I have attempted to become vegan for moral, health, and environmental issues. I’m proud to say that this time I am being much more convicted and vigilant in my stand against animal cruelty and mistreatment. Unfortunately, my parents are the ones who have put a stop to this transition, and I feel as though I have finally gotten to a common groud with them. I have volunteered at my local humane society which was the most rewarding time I’ve had, and even adopted a shelter dog. His name is Quinn, a miniature schnauzer, born last Valentines day. He was the best valentines day present I could ever ask for! I was ecstatic that his ears and tail and had not been docked, and he managed to fit seamlessly in with my family and our elderly Collie, Cellie. My father, who was never an animal lover AT ALL, has fallen in love with this little guy, giving me even more hope that a difference can be made. I am currently in a College Composition class in my high school, and I just finished an essay on animal activism. I presented it to the class, and even though I may not have completely changed everyones minds, I pull through the heckling I recieve because just one person being more conscious of these issues is a blessing. I plan on continuing and being a large part of the PETA family, and hopefully attending a college that can keep me on track! Thank you so much for teaching me so many things over the years, and for everything that you do for our four-legged friends!

    I am 13 years old and joined the street team June 2015. I am a vegetarian. I have a passion for working to help save animals. I love my family and my 2 pugs, Daisy and Diesel. I plan to work for Peta or Mercy For Animals someday because they helped me become a vegetarian and begin a whole new life of having common sense towards all animals.
